Coffee is a natural source of caffeine the same as tea and cocoa. Caffeine stimulates the mind and body mildly, it’s absorbed by the body from the coffee, tea or cocoa in about 30 minutes, its effects will last between two and five hours, it stimulates the metabolism and delays the feeling of fatigue.

All coffee is rich in antioxidants; but the green coffee beans have even more.
As we know we have to keep those free radicals from harming our bodies by taking in antioxidants from the food and liquid we put into our mouths to help support our body’s natural defences.

For people that are sensitive to caffeine, decaffeinated coffee contains the same amount of antioxidants as normal soluble coffee, just no caffeine.
Green unroasted coffee beans are rich in polyphenol antioxidants as opposed to normal roasted coffee beans that just have melanoidins, which form during the roasting of the coffee bean.
Coffee can be counted as part of your daily water intake as it’s just water and coffee and will not cause dehydration if drank regularly and in moderate amounts.
Green coffee is reported to have three times the amount of antioxidants as green tea.
If the green coffee bean has been left unroasted it has natural weight loss properties and when used in conjunction with a healthy diet it can decrease fat absorption and turn it into energy. They help you get rid of the right type of weight, which is fat and not body mass.
A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition claims that resurches found that chlorogenic acid from the green coffee causes significant levels of weight loss. They also discovered it works by reducing sugar absorption from the gut and speeds up the rate at which fat is burned in the body.
Green coffee is similar to green tea and in its raw, unroasted form, it is rich in plant molecules that speed up metabolism and this is also how it aids weight loss.
There are many suppliers of green coffee, from a quality fair trade blend to Nescafe found at many local supermarkets, this blend is green beans plus normal coffee beans, so you still get the same flavour. I am not sure if this kind of coffee still aids weight loss as chlorogenic acid is not listed in the ingredients but could just be part and parcel of the green bean. I am drinking it, so I will let you know if I feel better and loose weight. I already feel it is getting rid of unwanted toxins. And I do have more energy.
